I can't get it to connect to Facebook no matter what I do. I uninstalled and reinstalled, I disabled popup blockers, it still repeatedly asks me to log in and then goes to a blank page. Le suck.
It appears that Facebook has silently withdrawn support for this plugin by removing all download links and disabling the API that it relied on for authentication. (There was a version 1.0.8 as well, but it doesn't work either.)
Does not work for me. I hope others have better luck.
Does this not work in iPhoto 8? The built-in exporter doesn't really work the way I'd like.
Yes, it works. Go to "Export", and not to share. Took me a few moments to find it also.
why do we need this now that iPhoto exports to facebook?
For anyone still using iPhoto 5, 6, or 7 (only 8 supports Facebook exporting)?
Strange but true: Not everyone is running the latest versions of every app -- probably because they don't visit MacUpdate like you do! :)
Also because iPhoto's built in facebook syncing stuff totally blows. It doesn't handle captions correctly and it's very challenging to get it to properly link the "faces" it knows/you added to other facebook users profiles correctly. This plugin works a lot better for those reasons.
Even in iPhoto 9.1.2, the built in FaceBook exporting doesn't work right. It says a photo is exported, but it never shows up. The faceBook plugin is better, and also lets you tag and name the photos, which the built in export feature does not.
Since I upgraded to a 12 mpix camera with a 16:9 option, images from this camera and especially in 16:9, shows up to be verry blurry och pixelated/grainy when UL'ed via this plugin. When manually exported and UL'ed to FB - they look fine. =) They actually looks like crap from the plugin. Is there a problem to process higher resolution pictures OR wider images than with the original formats? Maybe the developer can make some changes for the future version to get rid of these problems? =)
Essential if you're a frequent Facebook user.
Thanks -- great plug-in.
The author should update http://www.apple.com/downloads/ as they are still pushing the 1.0.1 version out the door and although it installed without a hitch Facebook never showed up as an export option.
At least that was my experience with the one at Apple downloads. I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.7 and iPhoto 7.1.5 (738).
v1.0.4 has fixed my problems. Can upload multiple images, with tags.
Crashes when loading. Real shame - used to be so good.
Not working for me in Leopard at all. Keeps telling me there was a connection error, no matter how often I log in and confirm the iPhoto use on facebook.com :(
I used to love this, please fix it!! Thanks :)
